/// Google to Wall Street: You’ve Got Our Q4 Numbers Wrong
Here’s one you don’t see every day: Google telling Wall Street analysts that their estimates are too high. Google issued the heads-up this morning, via a blog post on its investor relations page, ahead of Q4 earnings on Tuesday. The gist: Google is selling off its Motorola set-top-box unit — its “Home business” — so it’s not going to include numbers from that group in its main report. But apparently the Street hasn’t figured that one out. “As of this writing, a majority of Wall Street analysts who cover Google have not reflected the Home business as discontinued operations in their estimates,” writes chief accountant Brent Callinicos.
